Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
This week we "celebrate" Halloween... a time where things appear as they are not. And this concept applies to much of our lives as well: Things are not always as they seem. We start with a look at our pet friends and how they feel about being "disguised" with clothes, with Nancy Windheart's "How Do Animals Feel About Clothes and Costumes?"
Another area where things are not as they seem comes to light in "Energy Cannot Be Destroyed; It Can Only Be Transformed", as well as in "To Reincarnate or Not to Reincarnate: Dogs, Humans and Consciousness"
And we also discover that our challenges and struggles come with a message and meaning, which are oftentimes camouflaged as problems; yet you can "Leverage Your Strengths and Find Meaning in Struggles". Ervin Lazlo shares how things are changing, evolving and again are not as they have seemed to be in the past in "A New Paradigm Shift Is Underway Today in Physics and Consciousness"
And to help discover the hidden messages and meanings in our life experiences, we have two astrological articles this week. The first by Sarah Varcas, "Healing Revelations: New Moon in Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde" and our weekly astrological journal with Pam Younghan's "Astrological Journal for the Week" where Pam shares "...we will need to be flexible and willing to release attachments to old forms and values."
And we wrap up the featured articles this week, with an article I wrote, "Hey! They're Playing Our Song".
And of course we have numerous new articles this week as well. Please scroll down for the featured articles in this new issue of InnerSelf, and also the recap of all the articles that were added to the website during the week.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Much as we might like to, at the energy level, we can’t get rid of something we don’t like—a thought, a feeling, a belief, a circumstance, or a situation. The good news, however, is that we can transform it.

I had believed in reincarnation as a child. It was almost a knowing, as I recall. I once had a sense of a place and culture where I’d been many centuries ago, though no recollection of past lives. I just recall a frisson of recognition as I was reading a history book and came across a passage about Chichén Itzá, the pre-Columbian city built by the Mayans...

Being on constant alert for danger has, at least from an evolutionary standpoint, helped us survive as a species. An unintended consequence is that it also has pushed us to have a negativity bias. Most people must make an effort to think positively instead of negatively.
Written by Ervin Laszlo and Pier Mario Biava, MD.
There is a widely discussed “paradigm shift” underway today. It brings a two-fold revolution—actually parallel strands of a radical “evolution.” First and most basically, an evolution in our understanding of the fundamental nature of the world.

This moon marks an opportunity to stop and take stock, turn within and ask some probing questions about what’s really going on in the places we most struggle in our lives. Excuses won’t cut it now. Pussy-footing around the point won’t work. Honest answers are necessary.
